In the east, Daenerys Targaryen, the last scion of House Targaryen, rules with her three dragons as queen of a city built on dust and death. But Daenerys has three times three thousand enemies, and many have set out to find her. Yet, as they gather, one young man embarks upon his own quest for the queen, with an entirely different goal in mind.

A Map of the World by Jane Hamilton depicts from the perspectives of wife and husband the trauma of the death of a child, jailing on charges of child molestation, alienation from the community, and eventual acquittal.
Alice Goodwin is expecting a pleasant summer free from work as a school nurse when she gets distracted and a neighbor's child in her care drowns in the lake on the farm property owned by her and husband Howard. Alice is consumed by guilt and shuts out Howard. Howard desperately needs her to snap out of it and resume caring for their young children, Emma and Claire. She makes a scene, fleeing Lizzy Collins' funeral and cannot face her best friend, Lizzy's grieving mother, Theresa. Rallying to the point of attending a school board meeting about her job, Alice again flees to the restroom and then the school property. Between these events, she is questioned by police about a hateful student, Robbie Mackessy, whom she once slapped. Worried about all of the grief that she has called, Alice blurts out that she hurts everyone. The police take this as an admission that their investigation of molestation claimed by Robbie's mother is true and Alice is arrested next morning.

Steve and Susan Zumdahl's books focus on helping readers build critical thinking skills through the process of becoming independent problem-solvers. Their philosophy is to help readers learn to "think like a chemists" so they can apply the process of problem solving to all aspects of their lives. In CHEMISTRY: AN ATOMS FIRST APPROACH, the Zumdahls use a meaningful approach that begins with the atom and proceeds through the concept of molecules, structure, and bonding, to more complex materials and their properties. This approach encourages readers to focus on conceptual learning early in the course, rather than relying on memorization and a "plug and chug" method of problem solving that even the best learners can fall back on when confronted with familiar material. The Atoms First organization provides an opportunity for readers to use the tools of critical thinkers: to ask questions, to apply rules and models and to evaluate outcomes.
